          I’m sat next to Taylor Swift. She’s on my left. And after Jon does his first song, there’s a pause, and she turns to me. She puts her hand on my arm, looks me in the eye, and says, '来吧, 威廉. Let’s go and sing,'” 他记得.
          To this day, I still do not know what came over me. 老实说, even now I’m cringing at what happened next, and I don’t understand why I gave in. 但, 坦白说, if Taylor Swift looks you in the eye, touches your arm, and says, ‘Come with me…’ I got up like a puppy and went, ‘是的, 好的, that seems like a great idea. I’ll follow you.'
          William continues his anecdote describing walking towards the stagein a tranceand trying to desperately remember the lyrics toLivinOn a Prayer.

          Beneath my black tie, there was a lot of sweating going on. I felt like a swan, where I was trying to keep myself composed on the outside, but inside, the little legs are paddling fast,” the royal says, adding that while he’s very comfortable delivering speeches, he has less experience singing live.
          “有时, when you’re taken out of your comfort zone, you’ve got to roll with it,” he adds.
          During the episode, the duke also reveals the impact his time as an air ambulance pilot had on his mental health. He details one experience helping a young boy hit by a car.

          My personal life and everything was absolutely fine. I was happy at home and happy at work, but I kept looking at myself, 去, ‘Why am I feeling like this? Why do I feel so sad?’ And I started to realize that, 其实, you’re taking home people’s trauma, people’s sadness, and it’s affecting you.

          Sitting in the backseat, singing away, it felt like a real family moment,” William says. “And my mother, she’d be driving along, singing at the top of her voice. And we’d even get the policeman in the car, he’d be occasionally singing along, as well.
